Longboarding along Taktak Road in Antipolo City

longboarding in Taktak Road, Antipolo CityAntipolo City is famous for fine dining restaurants because of its spectacular overlooking view of the metro, and of course, the Hinulugang Taktak and the Antipolo Cathedral.

But you might be wondering what outdoor activity you can do in Antipolo to fix your longing for some adrenaline rush. Have you tried longboarding?

For sure you’ve heard of skateboarding, which probably is the most known board sport among Filipinos. Longboarding, according Wiki, is the act of riding a longboard — a board which is longer and wider than a skateboard.

And on the pavements of Taktak Road in Antipolo City, longboarders find their place to practice their techniques and tricks for their fave board sport.

There are local groups around Antipolo, some from Metro Manila, who frequently spend hours on their longboards, sharing the passion for the board sport and a friendship that binds them altogether.

Taktak Road has an inclined slope that allows the longboarders for a speedy downhill ride. The adrenaline rush and the need for performing riskier tricks draw people to try this board sport.

And it’s nice to know that along Taktak Road, the best longboarders in the country might just be practicing there.

Rizal Provincial Fishery Office Rises in Antipolo City

BFAR Calabarzon opens Rizal provincial fishery office

Rizal Provincial Fishery Office - BFAR Rizal ProvinceANTIPOLO, Rizal, June 21 (PIA) — The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) IV-A achieved another milestone as it established the Rizal Provincial Fishery Office (RPFO), the 5th provincial office at Barangay Mayamot in this city recently.

Before the establishment of the office, the BFAR Calabarzon had only four provincial fishery offices (PFO) in the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas and Quezon. PFO-Cavite is housed in the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) in Rosario, Cavite headed by Magdalena M. Samala; PFO-Laguna is housed in the sub-regional office of BFAR IV-A in Bambang, Los Baños, Laguna and is headed by Victoria B. Adora; PFO-Batangas is housed in the BFAR IV-A fisheries inspection and quarantine services building in Batangas City and is headed by Rosario C. Del Mundo; and PFO-Quezon has its own office building located in Lucena City headed by Sonia O. Elloso.

Meanwhile, Rizal Provincial Fishery Officer Ma. Lourdes G. Cano has been a one-man office without her own building in the province of Rizal where she serves. Her table in the extension, training and communication division (ETCD) as the training section chief at the regional office in Quezon City also serves as her table for Rizal-PFO.

The establishment of Rizal-PFO’s office was initiated by Regional Director Esmeralda Paz D. Manalang in February 2012 during a management executive committee meeting. Through the perseverance and efforts of Mrs. Cano, the new office was realized, complete with office equipment and supplies.

During the recent blessing and inauguration of the office, Mrs. Cano said the establishment of the office is her legacy to succeeding Provincial Fishery Officers of Rizal. She was very thankful to RD Manalang as she was the only RD to have thought of providing her with her own office.

The PFOs are responsible for coordinating the various fisheries programs and activities of the Agency to the respective Local Government Units of their provinces. (BFAR4A/CPG, PIA4A)
